The Local Organising Committee of Edo2020 has announced that it will end the games abruptly on Thursday, April 8, 2021 for lack of funds.
Rising from an emergency meeting in Wednesday evening, the LOC said it took the hard decision due to lack of funds having expended its reserves to kick start the games.
“Regrettably, the Federa Government is yet to redeem its pledge to support us as the host state financially for the cost of postponements. So, we are left with no option than to end the games at noon tomorrow”, the LOC stated.
